Heffner Bible

"This is a transcription I made ca. 1988 in Avril Park, Rensselaer Co., NY. Unfortunately, I didn't know enough to record the date and publisher of the Bible. A second cousin said he knew who had it, but he would have to borrow it and bring it to his house, which he did. I never knew who owned the Bible. At least some of the information was recorded "after the fact". However, it has checked out pretty well.

Rensselaer Co. cemetery information is online.

You are welcome to share this information. If anyone has any questions I might be able to answer I will be happy to try.
The father mentioned, Andrew Heffner, 1825, filed an Alien Declaration in 1860 with the Justice Court in Troy, Rensselaer Co., NY.
